The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 52


page break


This Pamphlet is not intended as an exhaustive statement of the objections to a Protective Tariff; but only as an enquiry into the truth of the common Protectionist assertion that Free Trade causes low wages. It is attempted to disprove this assertion in two ways—1st, by showing that from it's very nature it is impossible that Free Trade could have such an effect; and, 2ndly, by showing that this effect is not in fact produced in a Free Trade country. Attention is also directed to the influence of Free Trade upon the general welfare of the working classes.
